    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    My rink had a test session scheduled for next week that was just cancelled and postponed to March. It was already postponed from December. This is so frustrating.

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election

    It would be very concerning, if as promised, Trump (and his ilk) created their own government-run news service. God forbid we ever have that.

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I know that it is an outdoor rink. But from a *****-spreading perspective, it looks dangerous to me.

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I was surprised to learn that the Phila BlueCross / River Rink is open. A local news station had it for background during the weather report. It was full -- even capped at 50 people (if it was), there is no distancing there.

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election

    I mean, on the one hand, yes. But on the other hand, there are times when it comes off as pretentious.

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election

    I was a bio major in college. In my sophomore year I worked in a research lab. Whenever I addressed my boss as Doctor [Davis], he called me Doctor [Goldstein]. That is to say, he did not like being called Doctor. I did not get the hint, so eventually he told me directly not to call him...

    2020 U.S. Presidential Election

    Jill Biden's use of the honorific "Dr." had long confused me. I did really assume she was a medical doctor. Not to denigrate the hard work of PhDs and EdDs, but The New York Times will not refer to one as "Dr." unless one has a medical degree. For example, an esteemed professor with a PhD in...

    Re-opening rinks with social distancing

    I read the Gov's announcement soooo closely looking for a loophole. But no sports and no entertainment facilities -- -- and in the FAQs, it specifies that dance studios and gymnastics are also suspended, so it would have to be impossible to keep PA suburban rinks open...

    US Presidential Race Returns - PBP

    MSNBC pundits chuckle and says things like, "Of course that is false." But not much more. I am a gullible person generally. I like to have lies debunked for me, and not be expected to debunk them myself.

    US Presidential Race Returns - PBP

    I wish the media would do a better job debunking Trumpsters' false claims. While it is fun to watch hair dye running down Giuliani's face, and fun to mock the demeanor of Melissa Carone, it would be more beneficial to folks along the continuum of the political spectrum if the media supplied hard...

    Beautiful Letter from Elliot Page

    Okay, thanks, makes sense. I have seen that "(as [other name])" before, in other examples.

    Beautiful Letter from Elliot Page

    I am glad for this thread. I am having a hard time with the fact that production credits and articles are changing the name Ellen to Elliot on projects that Elliot worked on before he changed his name. I changed my name (after marriage), but my school records continue to use the name I went by...
